Tapatalk Still a Load of ?

Post by mrix2000 » Tue Oct 01, 2019 10:27 pm

Hello all, I have been asked by a few members to install Tapatalk, I know from many posts in 2018 it was full of security holes and someone stated even email could be read :shock:
Has anything improved with Tapatalk or is it still not recommended by phpbb ?
Thanks for any feedback

Personally, I would stay away from Tapatalk. From what I've gathered, too much of a hassle to maintain when something doesn't work right.

I use tapatalk for more than 5 years and had never troubles with it.
You only have to look very carefully to the permissions you give a tapatalk user!

I'm also using Tapatalk and I haven't gotten issues except that it doesn't work with the prime links extension.

Tapatalk has never been recommended by phpBB as far as I can remember. For one thing it’s third party and another is there are far too many issues with it.

This. It’s not “only” though, when it forces you to manually change permissions of thousands of files and folders. :evil:
